  • i have lived by new york city my whole life. i have never been to chicago. so i can only answer half the question. its great. never boring and very very fast pace. if that is what chicago is like that is what new york is like. its huge. and its lots of fun. and its exspensive but worth every penny. personally i am looking forward to visiting chicago one day. when are you coming to visit? there is so much to see and do. just have to becareful not to get taken advantage of. its great to people watch and there is always something going on. have fun on your trip.

  • I was born in NY and raised in Chicago, all the while visiting NY several times a year. I think both cities are similar and have lots to offer but I will say I prefer Chicago over NY.

  • NYC is WAAAAY better than Chicago. There is so much more to see and to do. Best thing we ever did was get a map of the city and the subway system so we could plan how we were going to get around. And, the locals were all very nice about giving us guidance and advice! We are anxious to go back soon!

  • Chicago (is great!) is a great starter for NY. NY would just be more. Both great cities.
